About PINK from WIKI… is a pale red color that is named after a flower of the same name.

It was first used as a color name in the late 17th century. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic.

It is associated with innocence when combined with white, but associated with eroticism and seduction when combined with violet or black.

The color pink has been described in literature since ancient times.

Roman poets described the color. Roseus is the Latin word meaning “rosy” or “pink.” Lucretius used the word to describe the dawn in his epic poem On the Nature of Things (De rerum natura).

Pink was not a common color in the fashion of the Middle Ages; nobles usually preferred brighter reds, such as crimson.

However, it did appear in women’s fashion, and in religious art.

In the 13th and 14th century, in works by Cimabue and Duccio, the Christ child was sometimes portrayed dressed in pink, the color associated with the body of Christ.

In the high Renaissance painting the Madonna of the Pinks by Raphael, the Christ child is presenting a pink flower to the Virgin Mary.

The pink was a symbol of marriage, showing a spiritual marriage between the mother and child.

Pink is one of the most common colors of flowers; it serves to attract the insects and birds necessary for pollination and perhaps also to deter predators.

The color comes from natural pigments called anthocyanins, which also provide the pink in raspberries.

According to public opinion surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, softness, childhood, the feminine, and the romantic.

Pink was the least-favorite color of seventeen percent of respondents; the only color more disliked was brown, with twenty percent.

There was a notable difference between men and women; three percent of women chose pink as their favorite color, compared with less than one percent of men.

Many of the men surveyed were unable to even identify pink correctly, confusing it with mauve. Pink was also more popular with older people than younger; twenty-five percent of women under twenty-five called pink their least favorite color, compared with only eight percent of women over fifty.

Twenty-nine percent of men under the age of twenty-five said pink was their least favorite color, compared with eight percent of men over fifty.
